According to multiple sightings, the critically acclaimed television show “Mr. Robot” is being filmed in Bay Ridge.

The USA Network show that stars Rami Malek, Carly Chaikin and Christian Slater was seen filming scenes at Bay Ridge Avenue and Fifth Avenue on Wednesday, August 9.

Several residents claimed they read signs in the area for the filming of “Norwich Follies.” According to  OLV, a Twitter account that tracks television and movie locations, it’s a code title for “Mr. Robot.” Other locals confirmed that the filming was indeed of the hit show.

A sizable trailer was also seen in the area with the names Ralph and Alice on the doors.

In addition, filming took place outside Alpine Cinema featuring a DeLorean on the same day; reports indicate that the classic ’80s vehicle is connected to the filming of “Mr. Robot.”

“Mr. Robot” follows a young programmer working as a cyber-security engineer by day, and a vigilante hacker by night.

It has won several awards, including a Golden Globe in 2016 for Best Television Series; that year, Slater won for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series. Malek won a Primetime Emmy Award in 2016 for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The show is currently entering its third season, which is set to debut on Wednesday, October 11.
